A man identified as Mutiu Sonola has been arrested by the operatives of the Ogun state Police Command for beating his wife, Zainab shotayo to death.
Mutiu,37, allegedly started beating his wife in the morning on Christmas Day over minor disagreement and despite being told by neighbours to desist from further assaulting his wife, furious Mutiu kept hitting her with blows until the 34 years old woman slumped to the ground and slipped into coma.
He, allegedly, fled home quickly when it dawned on him that his wife was not likely to survive the beating.
It was learnt that neighbours notified the father of the woman, who rushed to the scene and took his daughter to the State Hospital, Ijaiye, Abeokuta, for treatment but doctors confirmed her already dead.
The Police Public Relations Officer in Ogun State, Abimbola Oyeyemi, in a release stated that the suspect was arrested by detectives from Ibara Division of the Ogun state Police Command.
